February 2020

Daylight Saving Time Begins March 8, 2020
Daylight Saving Time begins at 2:00 AM on March 8, 2020. In locations where DST is observed, the clocks will leap forward one hour. This may affect your credit card terminal or your batching, especially if your terminal relies on auto-close.

Some credit card terminals will not automatically pick up on the time change and require a manual date/time reconfiguration. Below are instructions on how to perform this change on the Verifone VX520 or a Dejavoo Systems V Series terminal (V5, V8, etc) if your terminal does not automatically correct the clock.
From the Dejavoo Systems Instruction Manual. If you are prompted for a password, enter 1234.

If your credit card terminal does not automatically implement the time switch and you are not using the above terminals, please call us at (215) 809-1000 or (877) 997-9473.
Merchant Link Gateway Platform Decommission
This message applies only to merchants using a non-EMV compatible Oracle POS earlier than Simphony2 or those who are a PMS not on a tokenization platform are affected by this decommission. Examples include TVClassic, mLodge and legacy protocols.
Shift4 Payments recently acquired Merchant Link, and due to outdated security technology, two of Merchant Link's six gateway platforms will be decommissioned. Impacted merchants (see below for more information) have until March 31 to upgrade their payment processing platforms - failure to do so in this timeframe may result in service disruptions.

Merchant Upgrades

To initiate the upgrade process, merchants can email or call 888.984.1243. Additional information can be found at You do not need to change your processor to upgrade, and you can specify that you are looking to make the necessary solution upgrades only.

Remember, AMG will always keep our merchants updated with the latest in credit card processing terminal and point-of-sale system end-of-life notifications. If you have questions regarding your POS systems, terminals, or payment gateways, please contact us during our regular business hours (M-F, 8:30 AM to 7 PM ET) at (877) 997-9473.
